High on a Hill Side Outside Darjeeling
Review of Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Centre, Darjeeling by koshkha

Advantages: It's a unique opportunity to observe a community in exile
Disadvantages: It can feel awkward and uncomfortable.

An attraction that takes a bit of an effort and a vehicle We spent several days in Darjeeling a few years ago and we thought wed already visited pretty much all of the citys attractions. When our driver offered to take us sightseeing, we were fairly ... Read review

Totally agree. There are a few of these places in the countries that border Tibet... and we need to go and take note... that the products are not the finest quality is part of the point. These aren't experts at anything, they're ordinary people trying to make a living at things which at home they'd just do for themselves and their neighbours... Interested that you'd see it as patronising to buy something you don't want. The Big Issue wouldn't survive on that basis - indeed a lot of modern big business wouldn't either: so on second thoughts, perhaps if none of us bought stuff we don't want.... hmmm. Might need to think a bit more about that one. Lx by hiker

I would have cried too. x by Graygirl
Quite an entertaining read for a barely contained rant. It just doesn't pay to be too British and not complain - mind you, I'm not sure you'd have got anywhere if you had. Lx by hiker
